Low Carb Penne & Fusilli to Change Weight Loss Landscape

Gianluca Mech, one of Italy's most prominent health-food authorities, is introducing his low carbohydrate, high protein, high fiber Italian Comfort Food Diet, launching his Tisanoreica penne and fusilli for consumers via his company’s new U.S. site,

The protein-based penne and fusilli taste, look and cook like conventional pasta. And, like regular pasta, provide a filling, palate pleasing foil to a limitless variety of ingredients and sauces. However, they have only 12 grams of carbohydrates per 55 gram serving or just four percent of the daily recommended intake value (DV), as opposed to grain rooted pasta’s 32 to 78 gram range which represents up to 26 percent of the DV. Plus, the Tisanoreica penne and fusilli boast 28 grams of protein, representing 50 percent of the DV and seven grams of fiber, 28 percent of DV. While regular pasta contains only four to 14 protein grams, just up to 28 percent DV and fiber typically ranges from three-to-five grams or no more than 20 percent DV.

One of the world’s most popular and versatile foods, pasta has long been eschewed by U.S. dieters because of its high carbohydrate content. With the introduction of Tisanoreica’s products, pasta dishes can now be incorporated into the country’s myriad weight loss regimes on which Americans spend some $60 billion annually.

Mech’s penne and fusilli are part of his Dieta Tisanoreica line of Italian Comfort Food Diet products by Gianluca Mech SpA, the Veneto, Italy headquartered company his family founded in 1911.
